Diving in Dominica

Explore diving in Dominica

As one of the top ten diving destinations in the world, Dominica has so much to offer divers of any experience level. There are calm shallows to explore, where curious seahorses cling to coral branches.

Deeper waters make home for over 20 species of whales that frequent these seas. Fantastic wall dives and unique crevices are waiting to be explore. La Sorciere, also known as L’Abym, is one of the most popular wall dives, where divers can peruse easily, as there is little to no current. Make your way along the volcanic ridge of Crater’s Edge, where barracuda stalk their prey and large schools of tuna and snapper make appearances.

Thermal springs erupt around the island, including underwater where volcanic bubbles and warm water emanate from certain sites.

When to dive in Dominica

A big attraction is the pod of sperm whales that stay close to the island from November to March.
